Sadly this restaurant is now closed as of mid-Oct 2016. There was not enough clients coming to sustain it despite the great food, reasonable prices and nice ambience. My wife and I miss it and hope. y some chance it will re-open as it was.

Tavola is an Italian restaurant. We serve a variety of Italian cuisines 7 days a week. We also have a very good selection of wines. Under the new ownership since October 2015, we have introduced a new lunch version of the pasta menu which comes with a significantly reduced price ($3-$6 lesser) as compared to dinner. Not to mention, our prices for most of the items are considerably lower than what we had under the old ownership. We are always striving to deliver excellent food and service to all of our customers. For the entire menu and to make online reservations, please visit our website.
